The retainer was the correct retainer, but it was necessary to call Whelen to determine which retainer was the correct one to use as a retainer. The A429 is an older system than the newer A650 system and both look very similar. Note that there was no connecting screw included. The connection of the retainer is somewhat fragile an it is necessary to obtain the proper size and type of screw to use to fix the retainer to the assembly. If the original retainer was lost in flight that may mean that the attachment point has worn and an oversized screw may be required.
This was the correct lens. It was necessary to call Spruce to determine that this lens was the correct lens to use as a replacement.
Order was requested red UPS and arrived the next day. While it was important to have the pins and connectors as back-up, they were not needed. JKM
Works great. Must use AMP connector for Cessna SkyHawk-NOT Molex. Learned the hard way!
The connector is well but the photo is confusing for order. Best regards Yves
I was actually looking Molex connectors and thought â€˜tis was the same since I didnâ€™t see Molex in the the catalog.
I bought 2 sets of Whelen wing tip strobes and Whelen Red and Green wingtip Position lights, the Molex connectors and wiring are not long enough to make a connection with the existing Molex connector on my airplane, so I had to buy 2 sets of male and female connectors and had to have a wiring harness made for the additional length, Whelen should make their wiring longer, it cost me over $100.00 to buy additional parts and have the harness made.
Yes, the A427 comes with the wire and connector attached.
